Man At Arms: Art Of War - Ep5, New World Warriors

Last night on the El Rey Network, Danny Trejo hosted a new episode of ″Man At Arms: Art Of War″. This week′s edition was entitled, ″New World Warriors″. Yes, time to look at how the Aztec Indians fought. There was actually a news item about a discovery made at an Aztec site. Archeologists found a pile of some 650 human skulls, believed to be those of women and children. Similar piles have been found in the past, usually considered to be those of males.

Premiere Episode of 'Man at Arms: Art of War'

Last night on the El Rey Network we had the series premiere of ″Man at Arms: Art of War″, hosted by Danny Trejo. The first episode was ″Weapons of Kung Fu″.

That program features 4 real-life blacksmiths who compete in a weapons making competition to win a $10,000 prize. ″Man at Arms″ however, goes into more detail about specific weapons, from their construction and their use. Produced by Robert Rodriguez, the movie director of films like ″Machete″ and the ″Grindhouse″ flicks, we have assembled a crew of experts to build and demonstrate weapons made famous in popular culture.
